The laptop of recently deceased Gerald Cotten will be given to lawyers, and the crypto exchange might be sold to satisfy debts.
According to CBC, the laptop that might provide access to $190 million of QuadrigaCX customer funds will be given to lawyers. Moreover, the lawyers are considering selling the company in order to satisfy the debts.
Canadian cryptocurrency exchange QuadrigaCX has faced financial difficulty since its CEO Gerald Cotten reportedly died of complications from Crohn’s disease in December 2018.
